The Air Conditioner Blues

Guys/Gals:

I have a 318ic 1995 with great appeals all around, but I am now suffering from the Southern heat coming upon me. My a/c only blows some cool air, which will not get me thru the summer.
I had another car where I put R34 canisters in the low pressure side of my system and lived happily ever after.

Can it be done on the E36 family?

Help:

Should be able to pick up some refrigerant from Wal-Mart or Autozone or wherever. Then just follow the Bentley procedures.

Well the bad news gets worse, I did use the Bentley manual to recharge using R143A and my car started smoking like a choo choo train. I have a leak somewhere around my evaporator thingy.
